Email error in SAS 9.3

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I am trying to send a mail using SAS 9.3 using the below statements:

 

filename mymail email To='abc@gmail.com' subject='Connection Status';
data _null_;
file mymail;
put "hi";
run;

 

When I run it, I get an outlook prompt to allow/deny the sending of mail followed with an error in log:-

 

ERROR: Undetermined I/O failure.

 

how to get rid of this error and the warning?

Hmm, undetermined I/O errors are hard.   Your code works for me, running 9.3 on Win 7:

 

1    filename mymail email To='someone@gmail.com' subject='Test email';
2    data _null_;
3     file mymail;
4    put "hi";
5    run;

NOTE: The file MYMAIL is:
      E-Mail Access Device

Message sent
      To:          someone@gmail.com
      Cc:
      Bcc:
      Subject:     Test email
      Attachments:
NOTE: 1 record was written to the file MYMAIL.
      The minimum record length was 2.
      The maximum record length was 2.

 

Maybe you should check your email options, e.g. emailhost, emailsys, etc.  Mine look like:

6    %put %sysfunc(getoption(emailhost));
LOCALHOST
7    %put %sysfunc(getoption(emailsys));

@Quentin: This is what i get:-

 


51 data _null_;
52 %put %sysfunc(getoption(emailhost));
LOCALHOST
53 %put %sysfunc(getoption(emailsys));
MAPI
54 run;

Re: Email error in SAS 9.3

I would suggest working with tech support. They should be able to dig into what may cause the undetermined I/O failure. Your code works for me, and sounds like it works for you, at least as far as SAS telling outlook "Please send and email," and then something breaks.
